Remove the instrument panel form the dash. Pull the back off and resolder resistor R13 on the back circuit board. This is a fairly delicate job and requires a fine pointed soldering iron. This fixed the Tach, Odometer readout, and fuel guage but not the speedometer in my 85 900 s.

Any ideas on the speedometer?

    This should have read 95 900 s instead of 85. Sorry about that.

    I did the repair mentioned, but the speedometer still does not work. Does anyone have any ideas about that?

1994 lexus ls400 tachometer speedometer dont work


check for a blown fuse in the fuse panel and if its not that pull the gauge cluster out of the dash and check the power and ground going to it cause most of the time its a bad ground wire or power wire cause people tend to kick wires under the dash on accident or they get worn or come apart

My gauges in the instrument panel are not working: speedometer, tachometer , fuel gauge etc.


If all the guages quit working at the same time, then it is probably a blown fuse. Check your fuse panels in the dash or under the hood. Look for a fuse that is labeled instrument panel or guages, it is probably blown.

Have you check the fuse to see if the fuse for the gauges are bad, also there is a fuse box under the hood that may contain additional fuses if one is not located in the fuse compartment under the dash.

Radio code for 1997 saab 900s


I'm afraid if you don't have the code, you will have to take it to a local dealer or specialist radio store to have it re-coded.

Fortunately, it's not expensive.

Speedometer is no longer working


I'm not sure this will fix it, but it's the "obvious" solution if it's real simple. Is there a button above the radio that says "black panel" ? If so press it and the lights would come back on. If that's not it, then it's probably a blown fuse. Open the fuse box (see owner's manual for location on your model and year) and look at the fuses to see if any are discolored or broken.
